For the past 30 years, Marc Sokol has provided services to executives and their companies as an executive coach, organizational psychologist, and talent management consultant for companies across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa in the areas of financial services, energy and utilities, retail, chemical, education, and government. He brings both real-world experience and scholarly perspectives to Snyder Leadership Group.
Sokol has a keen grasp of the practices that mostly effectively impact leaders for growth and organizational results. Drawing from his business background as Founder and Principal Consultant at Sage Consulting Resources, LLC, and extensive previous leadership of several of multinational business units, Sokol understands both the U.S. and the expatriate perspectives. His former work as a practice leader in a talent management-consulting firm fortified his knowledge of curriculum development for global teams and expanded his capabilities in leadership development services and executive coaching.
Balancing his corporate involvement, Sokol has served as adjunct faculty to the psychology department at Rutgers University in New Jersey and the management department at Brooklyn Polytechnic in New York City. He has co-authored two books, Action Learning Guide: Real Learning, Real Results (Minneapolis: Personnel Decisions International, 2006) and Impact Without Authority: What Successful People Know (Minneapolis: Personnel Decisions International, 2008). He frequently writes blog contributions and has published many articles on leadership and organizational development in peer-reviewed journals. He has also been a featured speaker at industry events.
Sokol holds a doctoral degree in Industrial & Organizational Psychology from the University of Maryland – College Park and an undergraduate degree in Psychology from City University of New York – Queens College.
